REDD Intelligence hosted the Latin America High Yield & Distressed Fall Summit, in which our partner Jean Paul Farah participated as speaker in the panel "The corporate outlook in Brazil & Mexico", to discuss Latin America’s two largest economies. 

For Brazil, the discussion covered the current environment for companies following the hotly contested elections. Will a wave of restructurings wash over the corporate sector if developed countries slip into recession and domestic macroeconomic conditions continue to fray? 

For Mexico, the debate focused on how the liquidation of two non-bank lenders is still reverberating among their peers, and more broadly, among high-yield issuers in the country. Will a dearth of funding plus mediocre growth at home propel these corporates to seek expansion abroad?
